Nectar is one of several Artifact currencies that can be rarely found within the Underworld. It can be given to characters as a gift to improve your affinity with them.
Characters receiving their first Nectar from Zagreus will return the favor by giving him a Keepsake. (Hades, however, is a jerk, and will not give a Keepsake.)
(Additionally, as much as Bouldy would like to give a Keepsake, as an inanimate object, he is unable to do so either.)
Nectar can be received as a room clear reward, as a rare extra reward for opening Infernal Troves, from the Fated List of Minor Prophecies, or in trades with the Wretched Broker.
Dionysus' boon Premium Vintage will give Zagreus one free Nectar when chosen.
With the Vintage Nectar upgrade from the House Contractor, Nectar will also give a random boon +1 Level when collected from a room reward. (As if Zagreus had picked up and used a Pom of Power.)
Characters Who Can Receive Nectar[edit | edit source]
||'...The food of the gods is the Underworld's number-one delicacy, and truly perhaps one of the only sources of genuine lightness here within this realm. How the substance came to be here is unclear to me, though even I have something of a taste for it by now, based on the few occasions when I've had the chance to try it for myself. Everyone I know in the Underworld, irrespective of their disposition, categorically enjoys the stuff. It is a prized possession, and anyone who would offer it up willingly does so genuinely as a friend.'
Prior to patch 032, Nectar had been known as Ambrosia.
